    Any one there! LG HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H55N Burning Problem!!
    Hi, Guys,
    I've a LG HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H55N optical drive called "Super Multi" Brand
    Is there anyone out there to help me with my DVD writer. Not burning dvds since I bought on 01 Jan 2008.
    The Pros:
    1. It reads few digit DVDs.
    2. It reads well all sorts of CDs.
    3.It burns CDs well.
    4. Bios displays the drive as a DVD Writer Drive
    5. DMA mode is on.
    The Cons:
    1. Most of the Digit DVDs (I mean the Digit 2008 DVDs) cannot be read.
    2. I use Nero Express Edition 7.0 to write DVDs but the drive doesn't detect blank DVD, inserted before hand and ejects the drive tray apealing for the blank DVD disk to be inserted.
    My system configuration:
    1. 3.06 GHz Celeron Processor (pinless)
    2. 945 Gigabyte GCCP Motherboard
    3. 512 MB DDR 2 RAM
    4. SATA HDD 80 GB
    5. Windows XP SP 3
    6. LG DVD Writer
    7. LG combo drive

    Man watch your Thread subject! all that is not necessary!

    Well seems to me your DVD lens in dead! Try cleaning the lens and check if it helps. Plus 1.5 years for a modern day DVD drive is OK! In recent times Optical drives have dropped in reliability considerably! They don't make'em like they used to!

    Hi,

    Friend,

    You've not noticed in my post that the DVD writes CDs well. I've problem with writing DVDs only. If it would be the matter of lens, then it wouldn't have burned CDs.

    The drive reads most of the DVDs but simply have problem with some of the digit DVDs.

    I'd like to add more about my DVD writer that it's Super Multi, Secure Disk brand.
    Manufactured by a company in S Korea.
